Gwen Stacy Re-Release Album, Two Songs On Absolutepunk.net
January 14, 2009
Hard working Indianapolis christian screamo group, Gwen Stacy, has announced they will digitally re-issue their Ferret Music debut album, 'The Life I Know', on January 13th. This version of the album will contain six additional songs from the band’s EP prior to signing with Ferret. Two of the songs from the re-issue can be heard online for free as part of an Absolutepunk.net exclusive at this location.

“I'm excited for kids to hear the old EP. I think it'll give them an idea of where we've come from and will help 'The Life I Know' make more sense.” Drummer TJ Sego commented, “The songs really show the progression we made on 'The Life I Know' and hopefully it will show them the growth we can make from 'The Life I Know' to our next record.”

'The Life I Know', originally released in 2007, has shown steady record sales since the album was released, selling 14,000 copies to this point. The band’s consistent tour history and tireless desire to please the crowds has helped keep them fresh in the minds of music fans. Gwen Stacy spent very little time at home throughout 2008, playing alongside bands like Unearth, The Acacia Strain, Protest the Hero, Mychildren Mybride, Agraceful, Whitechapel, and Haste the Day.

Gwen Stacy has also announced their new lead singer, Geoff Jenkins, formerly a guitarist/vocalist for Once Nothing. Sego spoke on adding Jenkins to their lineup: “He was a really close friend of ours before any talk of him joining the band and we knew he was a great screamer from his time in Once Nothing. We had our first show with him already and it went great, and I think the kids are going to love him.” [/b]

[b]Jenkins’

Biography
YEAR FORMED: 1998
HOME TOWN: Florida
MEMBERS:
Jeffrey Moreira (vocals)
Ryan Primack (guitar)
Christopher Hornbrook (drums)

The sun is only out for about five hours a day and even when it is up, its so overcast here you cant tell its daylight. Guitarist Ryan Primack speaks from the octagon shaped barn that serves as the bands recording studio located outside of Umea Sweden. Far from their native sunny climes of Ft. Lauderdale/Miami Florida, the trio of Primack, Chris Hornbrook (drums) and Jeffrey Moreira (vocals) have once again been working with the production team of Pelle Henricsson and Eskil Lovstro who recorded 2003s full-length You Come Before You. Poison The Well who formed in 1998 has sold over 300,000 albums in the U.S. and became the standard-bearers for loud music whose fury was matched by its display of emotion and that incorporated technical guitar and metallic bursts throughout. With their debut full-length The Opposite Of December (1999), the band spawned a legion of imitators but none who could match the intensity that weaved throughout the songs. The band has comfortably straddled tours with melodic emo acts, noisy punk group to brash hardcore and full out metal gods. A partial list of road partners over the past few years include Deftones, Thrice, Cursive, The International Noise Conspiracy, Killswitch Engage, The Promise Ring, Cult Of Luna, Thursday, Hatebreed, Glassjaw as well as featured slots on The Warped Tour and The Take Action Tour.

The forthcoming album to be titled Versions was written over the past year and Primack describes it as having many more colors and nuances than previous work. The songs are pretty open ended and theres a lot of unique instrumentation in the background throughout such as Mandolins, slide guitar, horns and banjo. Primack who plays all of the unexpected instruments on the disc adds this is not out of the blue, we actually started to add these elements to the last album but we didnt have time to flesh them out like with Versions. Its going to be a really different sounding album in hardcore, well as different as you can be in hardcore nowadays. While Moreiras lyrics reach many, he prefers not to reveal too much about his interpretation of them. Primack comments Jeff (Moreira) prefers that people find their own meaning to his words. If you ask him what do these words mean, hed be more interested in finding out what do they mean to you? The album to be released spring of 2007 also marks the bands first record for Ferret Music, who eagerly signed them after parting ways with Atlantic Records in summer 2006. While in-between label situations, Poison The Well was direct support to Shadows Fall on this summers STRHESS TOUR and completed a national headlining tour with support from Horse The Band, The Fall Of Troy and Criteria. Poison The Well have been regarded as a The band plans to tour relentlessly around the release of Versions next spring.
